I took out a bag that holds six cups of Ontario grown yellow plums that I cut into quarters and pitted in the height of summer, put a touch of sugar on them and froze for winter use
Upside Down Plum Cake
2 cups of thawed yellow plums placed on the bottom of a pie plate or a small square cake pan, I buttered the pan before I placed my plums in it.
Make your favorite white cake
- 1/2 cup of butter
- 3/4th cup of sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp of vanilla
- 3/4 cup of water
- 1 and half cups of flour
- 2 tsp of baking powder
- 1/2 tsp of salt
Cream the butter and sugar together, then beat in the eggs, add your water or milk if you prefer and vanilla, mix together well.. then add flour, baking powder, salt, mix in till no lumps and pour gently over the plums in your dish.
Bake in 350 oven till golden brown and a knife comes out clean..
Allow to sit till cooler-but still warm, run a knife on the edges and then flip it over onto a large plate or platter, hopefully all of it will move at the same time, but if need be, you can pick up one or two that didn’t move and move it over and smooth it in..
The cake is rich and sweet with the plum bite of tartness and burst of flavour.. could be served with a dollop of whip cream on the side.
